Croc-ing idea for WA se­ces­sion model

Croc canal

Pil­bar­ian Tim Ryan has come up with the so­lu­tion to West­ern Aus­tralia’s shock­ing GST deal.

On one of many Face­book sto­ries about the fair-share goods and ser­vice tax fight last week, Tim came up with this ge­nius idea to help spur on the long-awaited WA se­ces­sion.

“Per­haps we could dig a 100km canal along our bor­der and they can ap­ply for visas to visit our State,” he said.

“It would be full of crocs and whites in no time.”

We agree Tim, and like Don­ald Trump push­ing to have Mex­ico fund his bor­der wall, we say the east coast should pay for our toothy canal.

They have plenty of our GST dol­lars to fund it.

Pol­lie punt

Kevin Michel is find­ing his feet as La­bor’s newly minted Pil­bara MLA, hav­ing spent his first week at his Par­lia­ment House of­fice in Perth.

He has wasted no time get­ting out in public ei­ther.

At the Kar­ratha and Dis­tricts RSL AN­ZAC Day event last month Michel heeded the call to get in the ring as spin­ner for the the tra­di­tional game of two-up.

Like La­bor gam­bling its hopes in the Pil­bara on Michel for the State Elec­tion, a punt on Michel’s two-up prow­ess paid off for a few lucky lo­cals.
